REACH is the only emergency shelter for families with minor children experiencing homelessness in Palm Beach County. The program focuses on the immediate stabilization of families while working to fulfill a goal of obtaining permanent or transitional housing for the families it shelters. REACH also provides food, clothing, and case management services for 19 families at any given time. In the most recent year, the program provided emergency shelter solution to 64 families in crisis while guiding 84% of families toward achieving self-sufficiency.
Project SAFEProject SAFE, Adopt-A-Family's longest running housing program, provides a safe, consistent, and nurturing environment for 32 families experiencing homelessness. The program targets the community's most vulnerable families and prioritizes those with a head of household living with a disability.
Each resident of Project SAFE receives support from an on-site case manager. This includes providing families with access to financial literacy training, educational opportunities, mental health referrals, life-skills training, and affordable childcare. The program works collaboratively with service providers from the community to enhance opportunities for the families we serve.
Some of these agencies include Dress for Success, Palm Beach State College, Genesis Community Health, The Lord's Place, Community Partners, and other members of Palm Beach County's Housing and Homeless Alliance.
Program facts:
Project SAFE was a recipient of a unique grant award through the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The grant provided funding for the installation of state-of-the-art, impact windows for all five buildings in the program. The upgrade allows for a safer and more energy efficient environment in Project SAFE.
    Due to the barriers faced by the population the program serves, the program expanded its on-site staffing by bringing on an on-site therapist through a generous private foundation grant. With this addition in staff, the goal is not only to help families achieve independent living situations, but to improve their well-being in all areas of their lives — thus creating a stronger foundation for long-term stability.
